Born and raised in Charleston SC, Zania Cummings is an Actor, Poet and Creative based in NYC. She received her classical training at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts where she received the James Fisher award. After living in NYC she rediscovered her love of poetry and used spoken word as another medium of expression. She wrote and produced her first poetic short “Alchemy” in 2019 which has received praise and Best Poetic Film at the Detroit Black Film Festival. She prides herself on making art that is intentional and simply unapologetic! She is a proud believer in activism through art often reflecting on her own journey through black femininity as a catalyst of expression. My objective is to offer a level of vulnerability within each performance, making the audience feel safe in the space. I want to bathe the audience in poetic realism, with an emphasis on expressing that poetic realism on black bodies.
